Gregory Crowne is a concert agent with a difference. His real name is Crown Prince Gregory of Hirtenstein and, although he likes to play down his royal background, there are times when it comes in useful. Even billionaire Japanese businessmen, men such as Takamasa Shige, tended to be awed in the presence of this aristocratic, elegant and yet unassuming gentleman. So when a priceless cello is stolen from Crowne's star performer - the celebrated Finnish maestro Talik Edder - at the Edinburgh Festival, the Crown Prince finds himself unexpectedly cast in the role of sleuth. But then a strange case of food poisoning strikes at the hotel where his clients are staying and one of them is killed. Gregory realises that he will have to rely on brains rather than blue blood to unearth the truth.

Gregory Crowne prefers to be known for his work as a concert agent in the classical music world rather than as the exiled crown prince of Hirtenstein, but while in Edinburgh for a music festival, he discovers that sometimes a royal background is useful, especially when one is forced into the role of amateur detective. A world-famous cello used by Talik Edder, one of Gregory's clients, turns up missing after a performance at the festival only to later mysteriously reappear. As Gregory tries to figure out how this could have happened, another client, a singer who just happens to be Talik's former lover, is found dead. Gregory now finds himself in the midst of a puzzling mystery, one that only he may be able to solve. Though she is better known for her romance fiction, British author Barclay also shows a talent for the mystery genre with this excellent choice for readers who like civilized mysteries with an old-fashioned flavor.
